Engagement rings are important, but they aren’t the only important piece of bridal jewelry. Before you say “I Do,” it’s important the bride and groom both have their wedding rings ready. At CMI, we have lots of ring materials and styles to choose from – whether you’re looking for something simple, or a ring that’s a showstopper.

While there are lots of looks to choose from, our staff makes it easy to find the perfect wedding bands. Your bands represent your love and commitment to one another, so visit CMI and have peace of mind that your rings will last as long as your love – a lifetime.



If you love bright and lively colors, you will love August’s birthstone, the Peridot! Peridot is typically a brilliant lime green, although it can also come in brown or olive tones. Peridot is the child of volcanic action, and is often combed from the black sands in Hawaii.

In the past, peridots were favored by pirates, considered amulets against evil, and also used for medicinal purposes. It is now known for being the accepted gift for the 16th year of marriage.

Care should be taken with peridots, and they should be protected against scratches, sharp blows, household chemicals and extreme temperature changes.

Local Gems

PLACES TO GO : Whiskey Kitchen

Whiskey Kitchen is a quaint, centrally located spot that has outdoor dining and is dog friendly. You can find great events and specials on their website, but our favorite is their Flight Night which is every Wednesday, and offers 3 full shots of whiskey for just $10. While the libations are certainly a draw, you certainly won’t want to miss the food menu either. Our recommendations include the Fried Cauliflower, Pickle Jar, Mussels in Coconut Broth, or if you want to splurge, the Whole Fried Fish.

PLACES TO EAT: Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival

Royale is a French-American bistro located downtown offering a full menu of French dishes and a full selection of drinks. They offer delicious weekly specials, such as bottomless Moules Frites night every Wednesday, which features hand-cut french fries and incredible mussels, and Beef Wellington Night every Saturday. They also have wonderful salads if you’re looking for something lighter.

Every Wednesday is bottomless Moules Frites (mussels and fries) night, which features hand-cut french fries, Saturday is Beef Wellington night. Also if you’d like to try something on the lighter side they also have great salads.
